Why am I learning BSL

Hello all,

I have always loved languages and wanted to learn sign language originally in my mother-tongue, Italian. Since I'm living and working in the UK I decided to learn BSL, also for work. I work in an art gallery and I would like to be able to better interact with visitors that use BSL, especially if they can't lip-read because of the use of masks. I am learning so much from this course and finding BSL one of the most fascinating languages I've ever learnt.

Hello all,

I started learning BSL when my nephew was born with 3 deformities in each ear (very rare). he had cochlear implants aged 1 that were slowly turned up over 6 months but he wasn't fond of them, and the data was inconclusive as to whether they were working properly. I also noted that L (Nephew) was struggling to figure out where sounds were coming from in busy places. Anyway, we realised his first language would be BSL so i started learning just about a year ago - getting there slowly. I have to agree with SamDeSimone - i'm also learning so much and also find the language incredibly fascinating

Sign Language i Love

    • Hi all, I'm Alana (she/her). I met my partner in July who is hard of hearing. They wear hearing aids and can lip read me pretty well after only a few months but I am learning so we can fully communicate in all environments and also their hearing will get worse throughout their life so it is best to learn now. They are also learning so we are learning together! I never had to think about accessibility before I met them and I am very grateful that I get to learn about their experience. Meetin

    • There are so many reasons why I want to learn BSL. When I was little I was properly introduced to BSL by my mum, she learned BSL as part of her job as a child-minder. She taught me what she learned and I loved the language!  I always wanted to learn more but never found the time or anyone to practice with. I've had many jobs in public sector and learned that I could be more inclusive with my communication.  Being diagnosed with hearing loss motivated me even more to learn BSL. It

I've just started using a hearing ai

I love languages - I enjoy learning foreign languages, computer coding, and I’ve been wanting to learn BSL for a long time but struggled to find and pay for resources.
